June Meeting
Annual Potluck & Election

Potluck; Monday, June 6th at 7:00 pm
The Potluck
This month is our June potluck and election meeting. We will also have an art materials and books swap. Bring a book or books and/or materials you would like to share and swap. We have a sink at the firehouse where we meet and electrical outlets. The Guild will furnish paper plates, plastic flatware and cups. Bring a salad, main dish or desert. I suggest that these be divided alphabetically. If your last name starts with:
A – I  Bring a salad
H – O  Bring a main dish
P – Z  Bring a dessert
Bring your own beverage.


The election of officers will take place as well. Here is the current list: President: Peggy Sharrow: Vice-President/Programs for Meeting Manager: Claudia Weintraub; Secretary: Dale Draeger; Treasurer; Kim Campbell. If you have anyone else in mind and would like to nominate them, please do so at the meeting. We can always use help.

We will also be needing a new Vice President, Exhibits Chair, and Clothesline Sale Chair. Jana Johnson has stepped up to take over the Newsletter Editor Position, Thank you!! 

  1. The Vice President presides at meetings and performs other duties of the President in the absence of the President. The Vice President also arranges for the programs for the membership meetings. This can be done with the help of the rest of the Board.
  2. The Exhibits Chair keeps track of the places for exhibiting members to hang their work and schedules the months at different venues.
  3. The Clothesline Chair is in charge of the organization of the Clothesline sale (which takes place the first Saturday of August on the Courthouse lawn from 9:00 am to 5:00pm).

PLEASE, CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING FOR ONE OF THESE POSITIONS. The Art Guild can not function without the help of members volunteering.

Peggy Sharrow, President

2016 Clothesline Sale!
Things are starting to come together for this year's sale. We have permits. and the porta potty, hand washing station, trash receptacle and sandbags all reserved. Musicians have been contacted. Kurt Smith will be back for sure and the others are works in progress.
We need volunteers for the following: Set­up and Take­down committees, a Committee Chair to lead them and people for poster distribution.
To volunteer, you can contact me via email.
Since no one submitted a poster design, I'm going to take that on myself, with help from Elly Love and a donation­ of­ time from a graphic­ designer friend here in Canby. I plan to have posters available at the June 6th meeting for distribution volunteers.
People participating in the sale usually come to a short meeting the first Monday in July, but that's Independence Day. So instead, we'll meet at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 11th at the firehouse off Walnut and 53rd. The address is 4950 NW Fair Oaks Drive. This meeting will only take one hour. Requests for spaces at the Clothesline Sale of Art will be accepted at the June 6th meeting and thereafter. The Reservation Request form is available on the web site. The form says 2015. Please just cross through that year and write 2016. Additional information is also available on the website, or you can email me.

Rick Lorraine, Harold Wood, Richard Helmick and Doyle Leek on the subway in New York. (painting by Doyle Leek)

Rick Lorraine 
Rick passed away suddenly on May 14th. He was helping his daughter In Portland caulk around her windows, and was stung by a bee. He went into anaphylactic shock, his system shut down and he was removed from life support. Rick was a past president of the Corvallis Art Guild, and was active in the Chintimini wildlife rehabilitation. He had just gotten back from a five day Art excursion to the art galleries and museums in New York with his friends Harold Wood, Richard Helmick and Doyle Leek.  Rick had been living in Bend and was in the middle of moving to Silverton. There will be a later notice of where and when Ricks Memorial Service will be. Please send condolences to Jeannie Lorraine's temporary address address:
4634 SE Nehalem St, Portland, OR 97206

Watercolor Workshop with Michael Reardon
Dear Artist Friends:  A very talented artist friend of mine, Michael Reardon, is offering a workshop through the Oregon Society of Artists in Portland the weekend of May 13, 14, 15 in Portland. No membership is required to participate. Please pass the word along to CAG, the Art Center folks, the LBCC art students, Spring Chickens, and all your artist friends about his work and his workshop....

Check out his website for a gallery of fabulous watercolors....he also has a book out recently. Search Michael Reardon watercolor for his website, and take a look at the link here for the workshop in Portland....
Our Tuesday Critique Group is having an exhibit during the month of June at Imagine Coffee, 5460 SW Philomath Boulevard.  The reception will be Saturday, June 25, from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. We are inviting everyone to attend the reception and/or to view our paintings during June.  The artists whose work will be on display are John Byrne, Margo Eastman, Trey Phillips, Pam Serra-Wenz and JoAnne Walstad.     
Volunteer Needed for Clothesline Sale Set Up and Take Down 
The crew and materials will be in place. As Chair, you fetch the rental pick-up truck and sandbags on Friday, oversee a crew getting CAG’s clothesline from The Arts Center, setting it up at the Courthouse, taking it down again, taking the clothesline back for safe and tidy storage after the sale, and returning the pick up and sandbags on Monday. 

Without a Chair, we may hold the sale with no clothesline. Many artists do not use the clothesline. Begin to think about how you can display your art without it.


A special class presented by David Paul Bayles and The Arts Center

Once the work you create in your studio is ready to be shown to the world, it is essential that it be presented in the best possible way. Most often that involves digital imagery. Creating and managing digital images requires knowledge and skill. Even the greatest masterpieces will be overlooked by selection committees, publishers and gallerists if the images are inadequate.

In his beautiful rural studio, David Paul Bayles will help a small class of artists master:
• Folder/file management to store and locate images easily
• Sizing and re-sizing images for juried submissions while preserving image quality
• Understanding resolution requirements for multiple applications
• Understanding confusing photo terminology to get the most out of your imaging software
• Maintaining a pristine image archive so you always have high quality images for the coffee table book and magazine articles that are in your future

WHEN Thursday evening, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., June 16, 2016
WHERE David Paul Bayles Photography Studio 24662 Ervin Road, Philomath
FEE The class fee is $20
